Riga Rīdzene Rotary club CALL “Let’s Support the Physicians – Doctors and Nurses – Fighting COVID!”

 There are people who, unnoticed, currently guard us. Our physicians – doctors, nurses, sanitary wards in 9 hospitals in Daugavpils, Liepāja, Ventspils, Rēzekne, Jelgava, Valmiera, Jēkabpils  and  3 in  Riga –  Tuberculosis hospital, Stradiņi and Austrumu hospitals. They work 24 hours a day, closed mode, dressed in overalls, masks, without replacement and tired. Endangered as during the war in the front line.

We cannot grant these heroes with  the state bonuses, but we can express our respect and gratitude to them  delivering  warm food daily or during their  stay at home!

It has been done by the  movement “Table for Our  People” since the spring wave of the  Covid. Every day  about  300 dinners for hospitals and  emergency assistance in Riga and a little – in  Jelgava  has been provided. It is possible thanks to private and corporate donations. Money comes in for restaurants and canteens that have responded to the invitation –  food is prepared and delivered to hospitals in Riga.

 But – there is not  money enough to support rural hospital doctors. Riga Rīdzene Rotary club  invites Rotarians all over Latvia, charity organizations and  each of us and our friends to support the initiative.   These are hard  times for our Fatherland and  people must come to help!

Let’s address friends, businessmen, neighbors to donate as much as everyone can, let’s address the caterers, bread bakers, meat processing plants and farmers in Liepaja and Daugavpils, Jelgava, In Ventspils, Rēzekne and Valmiera –  each for their own local  county hospital, but all together – for Latvia. Riga Rīdzene Rotary club  is ready to organize the coordination of contacts between donators,  caterers and regional county hospitals.

 Phone numbers  volunteers  can use to  reach:  President of the Club  – Modris Resčevskis +371 29257744, Mairita Solima 29175000, Jānis Freibergs 29240120
